the best bits together for you. >> i believe they should say give us two more years to do this. if it doesn't work, you can throw us all out. we have an election two years, we near a deep hole, couldn't get going in time. that's what we all ought to be willing to judge what does and does not empower other people. the republicans have now given us their plan. and they've been pretty straightforward all along. i'll give it to them. they said vote for us, we'll repeal health care, oversight, the student loan reform. we want to begin to privatize social security and medicare and whatever else they said -- the other things they said here. i think that the democrats ought to put on one card -- no more than five and no fewer than three things that will be their priorities. we still have a chance here. we have 30 days to have an honest debate. we ought to do it. so far this election has been about stuff that's not going to affect people's lives very much. >> a certain former president said he was the most superior expresident because he was the one involved day in and day out in doing things across
. there you go. >>> welcome to "morning joe." great to have you with us. what a day in norm city yesterday. we actually had breakfast with ahmadinejad. you had lunch with warren buffett. i thought it was a bit in politic for you to ask him to come on "morning joe." tell people, you get warren buffett. you're at lunch and what do you say to him? >> he would be more than willing to carve out a three or four-minute segment once a week to just do stock tips. buffett's picks. >> what are you looking at? he's a hungry kid. >> you had breakfast with ahmadinejad. you had lunch with buffett. >> well, he was at the next table. i didn't have lunch with him. >> i had chicken tenders with my daughter. she's three. >> you're better than us, willie. >> that's like every time i'm going around with mika at speeches and she's giving stories. and then we -- i saw yasir arafat and stalin and churchill. >> is that your mika? >> that's all i got. >> your dad ran u.s. foreign policy. my dad ran a little league team in meridian, mississippi. it's fine. willie is snuggaling up to the chicken tenders. >> it's got to be
with the newest winner. christine o'donnell. she staged a disdcisive upset in the u.s. senate race in delaware. state party leaders said this woman couldn't get elected dogcatcher and karl rove dismissed her as nutty. the national republican party is promising campaign money and even the vice president has a warning to democrats. >> i wouldn't sell short these candidates. i think that in my state, this new republican candidate is going to have an awful lot of money. i think you're going to see it pouring in and the third party operations, we'll take it very, very seriously. big mistake not to take it seriously. >> nbc news capitol hill correspondent kelly o'donnell is in washington for us. kelly, good morning. this is really fascinating and a new poll out today showing americans, basically, don't know who the tea party is. about the same number have favorable and unfavorable views but an awful lot of people are undecided and you sort of wonder if the real selling point they have is simply change. the same way it was two years ago. people aren't happy and this is a group that offers something d
of investing that in the country use that to create debt and credit for poor people. so, the idea was, we'll take the pensions of the americans, the teachers, the judges, all this sg. >> all the states across the country. >> and we'll take that money and make it into credit card loans and home loans and this comes out of in 1999. that's the president financial markets and that's when the decisions were made for all the things we talked about since then. larry summers is central to that decision and this will be the most efficient, economic system ever because all that dormant middle class money will be used now in our economy. an interesting idea, the fact of the matter is, it has resulted in the largest transfer of wealth in the history of any country ever from a group of people in the country, all the american taxpayers, to a very small group of wealthy individuals who effectively took control -- >> 1% or 2%. >> less than 1% or 2%. i'm talking about a few hundred, a few thousand people tops who were in a situation where they were in charge of the credit casino that larry summers and bob
that he is amassing them to use against our friends, against our allies, and against us. >> iraq's weapons of mass destruction are controlled by a murderous tyrant, who has already used chemical weapons to kill thousands of people. >> we know he's been absolutely devoted to trying to acquire nuclear weapons. >> saddam hussein has and is amassing weapons of mass destruction to use against america. that, of course, turned out to be bullpucky as well. leading bush administration war proponent paul wolfowitz conceded later that it was mostly for political convenience that the bush administration decided to go with the whole w.m.d. argument in the early stages of the war. speaking from the white house briefing room on april 10th, 2003, press secretary ari fleischer said this. make to mistake, as i said earlier, we have high confidence that they have weapons of mass destruction. that is what this war was about and is about. no, it isn't. and no, it wasn't. ever. once the war was well under way, even the administration was forced to concede, reluctantly, that there weren't weapons of mass destruc
stated, there is no doubt that iran has weapons of mass destruction and that he is planning on using them against our friends, are allies, and against us. >> they are controlled by a murderous tyrant who has already used chemical weapons to kill thousands of people. >> suddam hussein has and used mass destruction weapons against america. that, of course, has turned out to be bull puck key as well. press secretary said this. make no mistake, as i said earlier, we have high confidence that they have weapons of mass destruction. that is what this war was about and is about. no it isn't and no it wasn't ever. even the bush administration was forced to concede reluctantly that there were not weapons of mass destruction where upon the president decided to make it into a joke. >> no weapons over there. maybe under here. >> that was just as hilarious at the time as it still is today, with more than 4,400 american lives to bolster the belly laughs. ultimately, none of the things our government, at the time, told us were the reasons we had to start a war in iraq were true. opponents of the war said
elections in november. nbc's tracie potts joins us. good morning, tracie. >> reporter: what to do about taxes. the senate confirmed what the house already said, this is not going to happen before you go to the polls in november. senate democrats got together, but could not agree on how to move forward. the issue is whether or not to preserve the bush tax cuts for everyone or just for the middle class and let taxes go up on the wealthy. it is a political hot potato headed into november. not one that the democrats now say they want to touch before you go to the polls, however, what they did back, a small business bill, $30 billion, a new fund to help small businesses get loans. this was mainly a democratic issue. the idea here is that if businesses have more cash, they'll hire people, buy equipment, expand and help pull this economy out of a slump. the gop called it a bailout. their plan is their new pledge to america, a government that's too big, they say is something they want to get rid of if they're elected in november. they also want to expand tax cuts and several other measures that
30 years in prison for a crime they say they never committed. >>> great to have you with us, everybody. just weeks before the midterm elections both republicans and democrats are trying to figure out whether the tea party movement will help or hurt them. there's so much discontent over the economy and high unemployment that americans are telling us in poll after poll that the status quo just won't work any more. in the politco george washington battleground poll only 28% said the country was headed in the right direction. 63% said it was on the wrong track. a brand-new poll out today gives us insights as to how they're feeling about the tea party. chief washington correspondent nora nor norah o'donnell joins me now. tell me what it gives us as we're heading into november. >> it reflects what we've seen in our poll, a lot of americans are fed up with the direction of this country. they don't trust washington. they don't trust big institutions. and they want change. and then you see segments of the voting population that not only want change, but they are mad as hell and that
appreciate you taking a break from counting your rare gold antique coins to join us on tv today. >> gold coins. you know what else? they have chocolate in the middle. >> the great scandal of 2010. thank you, keith. >>> thanks to you at home for staying with us for the next hour. we begin tonight with the great unveiling. house republicans held their big take your jacket off photo op today to prevent their agenda for this election year. it was a bit of a flop. not in terms of the photo-op. the photo-op looks awesome. the blue shirts, it's amazing. no problem there. but the reception it received, that greeted it upon arrival was blunt and not positive. their big election year pledge was called, drek and pablum and full of glaring contradictions. also, milquetoast. those were things from people on the right. those terms were from the most popular, heavily trafficked red wing blog, red state and for the club for growth. for all the criticism on the right, if you are in the business of trying to figure out what might happen if republicans win the elections this year, the most important thing
. >> that's exactly why -- >> how you used to be a witch? >> because i dabbled into witchcraft. i hung around people who were doing these things. >> having fun? >> i'm not making this stuff up. i know what they told me they do. how many of you didn't hang out with questionable folks in high school? but, there's been no witchcraft since. if there was, karl rove would be a supporter now. >> there woo we have the original statement in 1999. how to this wcheekend's rebutta of that. kelly what do we make? is this a quick way of dispelling that video clip from 1999, to make light of it this weekend? when i talked to christine about various clips, not this one in particular, she says that she was trying to be a pundit and entertaining guest when she appeared on bill maher's show about two dozen times in the late '90s. when you talk about things like witchcraft, when trying to be a credible, serious candidate, 11 years later that is difficult. she did try to make light of it and to brush it off as activities that she did when she was in high school and then trying to have kind of the political
intrigue on the internal anxiety over the afghanistan war. >>> plus -- >> she quit working for us and worked only for herself. what kind of political admaker turns an opponents head into a giant, floating blimp? you will meet the man. good morning, everyone. i'm savannah guthrie. >> i'm chuck todd. by the way, yesterday was the last day of summer, so why not have reports about the last day of summers. we're about 40 plus days to election day. we're going to begin with another palace intrigue story. that's the bob woodward book. the news is already started to leak out thanks to the "new york times" finding the book in it. in it, some of the battles within the obama administration over the war. vick, it looks like woodward is creating characterable moments about things that have leaked out. >> that's a good way to put it. bob woodward has done it again, you guys. appare apparently, a lot of west wing china got broken. you remember those three-hour strategy sessions in the basement of the west wing last fall. apparently now, it was an administration at odds with it. at one point, the
to us. i am going to ask a question to you. we were one of the allies of the united states or the west. would we be treated the same way by the agency? >> the iaea -- >> translator: the iaea, yes. >> the iaea treats -- >> translator: please, please, let me finish. the iaea visit or inspect nuclear facilities or provide any report from those in france or the united states. do they have any access to those facilities? they have no access to those facilities in these countries. >> according to the united nations -- the iaea has, in fact, found grounds for a special procedures in the case of iran, and there are years of sanctions that attest to the fact that iran has not, in the eyes of the world, agreed. in the eyes of russia and china, the strongest allies on the security council. will you let the inspectors in? or if you don't, is there a risk of further hostility? >> translator: we are going to do everything within the framework of the law. we have already allowed them to inspect our facilities, and the iaea has visited our facilities a few times. they should value our opposition. if t
, luke. keep us posted and let us know. >> will do. >> when we get a final tally on the vote. i want to bring in rachel maddox. as you know, a couple of the waivering republicans said you've got to give us a little more room for amendments here. harry reid said no. this is the result. >> well, there's a couple of things. first of all, it's a historic decision to filibuster the defense reauthorization bill. this is something that has passed 48 times in 48 years. it just passes. this is one of the things that just passes. and that's why actually you've seen over the years lots of amendments, lots of things passed that are attached to this. originally when don't ask, don't tell was instituted, it was passed as an amendment to this bill. in 2007, we saw republican senator orrin hatch attach the dream act to this bill. some of john mccain's campaign finance provisions have been attached to this bill. so republican objections that they are very upset about democratic amendments to this are a little strange, given how many amendments republicans have attached to it. also harry reid's office
to you at home for staying with us for the next hour. for the next hour in which we shall celebrate the launch of lawrence o'donnell's new show which is tonight right after this hour. we shall celebrate the arrival of our new desk which inexplicably has something to do with the start of lawrence's new show with you i'm not sure what. i'm very excite body my new desk. we shall also celebrate the return of barack hussein obama. he is back in talking points just in case any republicans previous efforts to convince you he is secretly foreign did not work on you, they're going to give it one more shot. that's all to come over the course of the hour. >>> but we begin tonight by putting a giant asterisk on the well worn political truism that all politics is local. the big decision democrats had to make about this year's elections was whether or not they would try to run this year's elections as a national campaign, whether they were going to try to run as democrats versus republicans or whether they were going to try to block out everything happening at the national level and, instead, hop

are not anti-wall zreet or business. >> what has made us successful over the long term is we have the most dynamic free market economy in the world. government can't create the majority of jobs. in fact, we want to get out of the way of folks who have a great idea and want to run with it. >> john harwood moderated the town hall, which will reair right here on msnbc. a lot of ground was covered in an hour's worth of time. explain to us the main points the president was trying to drive home. >> well, i think it's the balancing act, thomas, that you identified a few moments ago. he's got to reassure business, which has a lot of cash on their balance sheets that's not being invested that could be a key to growth that they should have confidence in him. they should not see him has somebody attacking him. he has to convince ordinary people he's not too pro business. we had a poll that said most people think he's helping investment banks and large wall street institutions rather than him. it's not easy for him. he kept to his stance on tax cuts. we have a debate on whether the bush tax cuts shoul
we'll see you again tomorrow night. i'm chris math use up in new york. bill clinton pitching coach, former president clinton who outsmarted republicans who tried to make him a one-termer has some political advice for president obama. he said there's still time to for obama to hold off for republican tidal wave but he says the only way to stop that republican wave is to tell voters not to let their disappointment cloud their judgment that obama's got plain to voters that our economy is improving faster than most of the worlds. that he's got to be optimistic about the future of this country and make the argument about republican ideas being no good. he's also got to nationalize the midterms in 1994. that's the advice today. and the president has to ask for two more years to get the job done. can this president pull off a popularity comeback in the way bill clinton did? that's our top story. plus, house republicans unveil their pledge to america today and it could be the biggest cover-up since watergate. it showcases all the predictable soft sell proposals but goes radio silent on the
[ laughter ] >> bret: that's real. thank you for inviting us into your home tonight. that's it for "special repot't't't't't't't't't't't't'tl o'reilly. >> bill: "the o'reilly factor" is on. tonight: >> the question for voters is who is putting forward policies that have a chance to move our country forward? >> bill: a stunning new poll says president obama is very well liked personally by americans but the majority of registered voters are rejecting his presidency. we'll tell you why. also, that poll runs down which media have real power in america. bernie goldberg will analyze that the factor catches up with khan. the 9/11 truther. >> do you know that you are a 9/11 truther then. >> i don't believe so. i don't know. you could ask him. >> how could he have not have known? >> bill: we will show you what happened there. see all the evidence that you can compile that shows that your party is racist. >> if i show you that will you concede the point? >> bill: i have to see what that evidence is. marc lamont hill says he has proof, proof that the tea party has a racist agenda. >>
'd like you to help us with some perspectives. the numbers are better than expected, but, as i understand, the gains were driven by apartment building and is this good news, bad news or something in between? >> a lot of numbers in between this. is it good news? look, anything that goes up is good news in this economy. we also have to put it into the perspective of how low we were from housing starts off of historic peaks to historic troughs. looking at that 10% number. the single rise in housing starts was good. we're seeing some increase although you have to wonder why if there's so much inventory on the market already. we came off that homebuyer tax market and we saw this huge drop in new home sales because of the tax credit, but, now, we'll start to see people come back into the market as the housing market recovers and we better be ready with some new construction to offer them. that's probably what they're thinking going into that single family housing number. apartment buildings which were up 32% month to month. why is that? because the homeownership rate is actually dropping. more
about iran. she joins us in her very first interview before addressing the general assembly and meeting all the other delegates. susan rice, thank you so much. iran again challenging the u.n. watchdog saying it is operating illegally, has no right to crack down. he's also saying the u.n. sanctions are having no effect, the effect of an interview -- in one interview he says it was a spoiled kleenex. what is your best information on how to deal with iran and whether these sanctions are having any effect? because certainly in his public statements skand iran's behavio it doesn't seem to have stepped back. >> you wouldn't expect the leader of iran to come ask say the sanctions are killing me. but with all the evidence we've seen, these have proven to be the toughest set of sanctions. u.n. community has ever imposed on iran and they're having difficulty as well as having iran move ships to acquire access to banking. they came in three categories. first, that that we passed at the united nations securities council. then the european union came behind, as did japan and south korea, others, can
but can you keep this part and that part and that other part and why the republicans are using a slogan repel and replace. they are saying we will seep kooep some of the things but haven't figured out what parts they will keep and the trick it's not easy to have the popular provisions without some of the unpopular provisions. for instance you prohibit bans on coverage for people with preexisting conditions. you have to have an individual mandate to make sure that the costs don't blow up and get out of control and they haven't done, i think, yet the hard work of saying how are we going to do this? how are we going to keep parts of the people and get rid of the parts that people don't like? that is the hard work of governing and their document is not really being honest about that right now. >> good to see you, michael. >> great to see you. thank you. >>> democrats have countered this house republican pledge to america with their own promise. refusing to release their own agenda. vowing, instead, to run on their legislative record. democrats, though, are calling the republicans commitment
's deputy political director joining us from washington. so it's called the pledge to america, mark. what's in it? >> well, savannah, there are many components, but among the provisions that they are going to be laying out today, one would be make all the bush tax cuts permanent. another priority for them would hold weekly votes on spending cuts. and then finally, to repeal and replace health care. of course, many of these ideas aren't necessarily new. we've been hearing from republicans for a very long time their desire to repeal and replace health care along with extending the bush tax cuts. but this is a response to democratic charges of where is the beef? what would republicans do if they take back control of congress? and this 21-page document essentially does that. it lays out their ideas, what they would like to accomplish, and their priorities for the next congress. >> all right. mark murray in our washington newsroom. you know, savannah, the interesting thing was the reaction among folks at national review, for instance, or representing the pragmatic ring of the republican party
,000 bail. we don't know if money was paid, who paid it. we think one of the gulf nations, oman. the u.s. government says it did not. and if it was paid if it was 500,000 or less. >> absolutely. we do have information from the swiss embassy who represents u.s. interests here that the om omani people were instrumental in securing her release. all indications are they did help with the bail. >> it's an amazing drama, and our focus does remain on josh and shane and the fact they are still in prison and, in fact, the prosecutor said today that they will have to stay in july for two more months. this is the first time we had an end date. it doesn't seem they will be released immediately. >> it's not such an ominous sign, because it's the first time they put a time frame on this, which could be a positive signal. >> thank you, ali arouzi, we'll have much more of your reporting on msnba and throughout the day and evening. now joining us is nicholas burns, former undersecretary of state who entered a lot of negotiations behind the scenes with the iranians over the years on issues as large as the

for watching us tonight. stunning new poll on politics in the media that is the subject of this evening's talking points memo. survey done by politico and george washington university asked 1,000 likely voters about the current state of politics and the media in the u.s.a. the results may surprise you. first, 45% strongly disapprove of the job president obama is doing. 35% strongly approve. but personally, this situation is reverse. 47% of likely voters say they strongly approve of the president as a person. just 19% strongly disprove. on the subject of his possible re-election, 44% say they will vote against barack obama the next time around. 38% say he deserves to be reelected. 42% of americans say the president is very liberal. and 41% say the new obama care legislation is terrible. just 18% favor it enthusiastically. so the mood of the country is obviously running strongly against mr. obama's policies. as for the republican party, mitt romney has a 45% favorable rating. 28% don't like him. sarah palin 44% like her. 49% do not. mike huckabee 49% like him. 25% do not. and newt gingric
